If there were merit badges given out for parenthood, “Survived Stepping on a LEGO” would be one of them. After all, once your child (inevitably) becomes obsessed with the colorful bricks and iconic mini figures, they seem to pepper all corners of your home, car and even your yard. (And despite the fact they’re literally everywhere, you’re guaranteed to find yourself on the occasional quest to find the one essential brick they’re looking for and simply can’t live without.)

So it comes as no surprise that LEGO storage has become its own category of home organization. From keeping your feet safe to saving everyone the aggravation of hunting down missing pieces, there are tons of clever ways to keep their growing collection neat and tidy.

They’re not always the most gorgeous storage solutions, but hey–a cascading pile of sharp plastic isn’t either. We’ve hunted down some of the best LEGO storage containers and LEGO tables for easy organizing that make clean up a breeze. Check them out below!
